The Roitfelds For Givenchy Fall/Winter 2013

The Roitfelds For Givenchy Fall/Winter 2013
By Bernie Rothschild

The Fall/Winter campaign of Givenchy for 2013 takes the theme of family values. Riccardo Tisci chose to put his mentor, collaborator, and muse Carine Roitfeld together with her daughter Julia Restoin-Roitfeld with photography by Mert & Marcus. The campaign also features actress Amanda Seyfried, models Mariano Ontanon and Dalianah Arekion, and Spanish actor Quim Gutiérrez. But I notice that Mariacarla Boscono, another longtime muse and personal friend of Mr. Tisci, is missing but my wild guess, she's probably going to star in the eyewear and accessories campaign. Though, I find that putting Carine Roitfeld in the campaign is unnecessary. She is pretty much involved behind the scenes. But it's probably a tribute to Riccardo and Carine's friendship. As we all know, it was her who helped Riccardo Tisci when he was just a newbie in the industry. She supported him during his first collections when everyone criticized him for his "darkness" and "gothicism." It was Carine who religiously wore his designs for every occasion such as parties and Paris Fashion Week and her Vogue Paris was the first magazine to feature the design of Riccardo Tisci on the cover (December/January 2005 Kate Moss). Even with his success, Riccardo did not forget Carine, it was him who put Carine "afloat" when she left Vogue Paris. In the fashion industry where change is constant, their dedication and loyalty towards each other is amazing. Cheers to these two fashion visionaries.

Lovely points, B, their loyalty is absolutely amazing, love.

Two notes:
1. This is the only time I ever remember seeing Carine Roitfeld in lipstick.
2. Why didn't they include Romy in the campaign? May as well start her career now… it's inevitable….

She's wearing lipstick but the photo is in black and white (so we cant really see her wearing one?) and Julia is very protective of baby romy, she won't even show her face in IG.

WOW- RICCARINE keeps giving us great fashion! The oversize charm bracelets are gorgeous! I saw them in Vogue Collections and hoped to see them in editorials!

I don't like Carine being the face of Givenchy. I love her but i think it's too much and it reminds me why she was "fired" by Conde Nast.
I was used to see her styled models like her (Gucci fall 2002 campaign) but to be in the campaign is too much really.

However, she is amazing. Very photogenic and i love her body language. I am less impressed by Julia.

Does she has 5 campaigns for the fall 2013 season (as always) or more?

Lola- i think it's a tribute of friendship. It's not the first time major design house used stylist to star on their fashion ad.

I have never commented, even though, as a huge Carine fan, I enjoy IWTBAR very much :-)

I'm sorry to say that I absolutely detest the over the top airbrushing in the Givenchy campaign. Carine looks like a supernaturally perfect version of her 30-something self as dreamed up by Pierre et Gilles, whereas Julia looks like any random model. Why did they do this?
